03.16.2011 - End of February, the National Council approved the decision to increase the financial aid allocated to public development to a 0.5% of the gross national product by 2015. This vote is a step closer to realising the Millenium Goals including those related to Enfant du Monde’s mission: insuring primary education for all, reducing infant mortality and improve maternal health.

Enfants du Monde supported and collected signatures for the «0.7%- together against poverty» campaign a, submitted to the government in 2008. The 0.7% is the amount determined by the UN and accepted by the States for development aid. As it stands at the moment, Switzerland has not yet reached this rate nor has it respected its international agreements.
